Eagles CB Byron Maxwell could care less about criticism of poor play

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell prides himself on his “thick skin,” and he’s not bothered one bit by the national criticism he’s received for his poor play thus far in 2015.

Maxwell wants to show he is worth the dough against Dallas…

Byron Maxwell has a lot of challenges ahead of him to make his preseason talk stand up… Last year with the Legion of Doom… It’s one thing to say a cornerback “can’t cover” an elite receiver— it’s quite another thing to say a guy is temporarily “lost” in a new system which may have some fundamental design flaws.
